The Third Coast International Audio Festival presents a special 11 episode series of its flagship radio program "Re:sound" (heard weekly on WBEZ, Chicago). Hosted by award-winning producer and writer Gwen Macsai, "Re:sound" is known for presenting unforgettable audio stories carefully curated from around the world. Each episode explores a new theme through a variety of lenses, a refreshing mix of storytelling styles and joyful use of sound.

For this series, Third Coast has chosen ten favorite "Re:sound" episodes, nipped and tucked the shows to get them ready for the national stage, and teamed up with PRX, the Public Radio Exchange, to share them far and wide.

"Listening to 'Re:sound' can wake you up, surprise you, and make you glad you turned on the radio. You'll hear stories from all over the world. You'll hear things you didn't expect. How refreshing."
Jay Allison, Journalist and Producer of "The Moth Radio Hour"

“Re:sound is for listeners who truly love a mixture of compelling storytelling and intricate sound design – it beautifully satisfies our audience’s need to learn more about human nature across the world over.”
Alison Scholly, Interim CEO/COO of Chicago Public Media

Details:
- Each "Re:sound" episode is 59 minutes with two :59 seconds breaks for your local announcements (note: there are two exeptions)
- Stations are welcome to air some or all of the ten episodes
- Promos are available for each episode
- Last but not least! Have docs, will travel. In fact, Have docs, love to travel. Stations airing the series interested in hosting a live listening event with "Re:sound’s" Gwen Macsai should contact Johanna Zorn at jzorn@thirdcoastfestival.org.

Funding:
Support for the 2014 "Re:sound Specials" comes from the National Endowment for the Arts, the MacArthur Foundation and individual donors from Chicago.
